Skunked?!?!

We thought we'd try a little pond fishing today. Here the blacksmith makes his first cast using his fly rod. That's pretty tricky sitting in a canoe with another fisherman. But he's good at it.

Of course I'm a lady fisherman, or is it fisherlady? Anyway, I don't bait hooks, and I don't remove fish. So here he is kindly removing a small bluegill I caught. It was one of two for me for the day.
From there fishing went down hill. After an hour or two, we had 4 in the basket. So as much as we hated to, it was a catch and release day!

But hey the sky was beautiful!!!


Back home I got both my caffeine fix and sugar fix. Now where's the chocolate fix?

I'm wanting a chocolate fix too. Sounds like you all had a nice time today even though the fish were slow today. This MO Gal baits and removes fish but I have no clue how to clean fish! I always catch and release.

I've had my chocolate fix a couple times today. ;)

Looks like it was a beautiful day!

I love to fish!! I too can bait my own hook (once I even BIT a worm in half cause that's what my dad said you did!) and remove my own fish...but I can't clean them either..

I wasn't so sure about what I was going to find here with your title! I miss frying up the crappie CH's Dad used to catch at the Lake. Just doesn't get any better. We used to get a few bluegill too! I can take em off the hook but it used to make me shudder to put minnows on the hook. What a beautiful day to be out on the pond!

My husband likes the coffee flavored yogurts too.

You sound like the same kind of fisherwoman I am...or was. I have not fished since I changed husbands..over 20 years ago. LOL.

Hey Patti. I don't bait hooks either. But I will take the fish off, so I'm one up on you there. It was a beautiful day yesterday. A bit warmer today.

I looks like you had fun. I'll bring chocolate!
